Sarasota, FL (January 25, 2020} – The Louis and Gloria Flanzer
Philanthropic Trust has announced a $500,000 matching challenge through its 2020 Flanzer Contribution Matching Program in hopes of inspiring locals across Sarasota and the Suncoast area to make a difference in their communities. All donations between $5 and $500 will be matched 1:1, up to $500,000, for select nonprofit agencies in the social service, social welfare, K-12 education and healthcare sectors.
“Louis and Gloria Flanzer always believed in the goodness and generosity of people, and they loved Sarasota and the Suncoast, so much so that they bequeathed their entire estate to their charitable trust and made it clear to their trustees of their desire to include not-for-profit agencies in the area as an important focus of philanthropy,” said Eric Kaplan, co-trustee of the Flanzer Trust. “It is important for there to be a community-based network of contributions to the agencies that keep Sarasota and the Suncoast healthy and provided for – one that is comprised of the general public.”
Individuals who wish to participate in the 2020 Flanzer Contribution Matching Program can visit FlanzerTrust.org to make an on line donation through PayPal. Donors can also send checks payable to the Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust to its offices at 1843 Floyd Street, Sarasota, FL 34239. The Flanzer Trust encourages people to make automatic monthly contributions of $20 or more.
